“Books as Life” is the topic of this year’s Philadelphia Center for the Book Members’ Exhibition at the University of the Arts, Gallery 224, 333 S. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106. The impact of art and creativity as we move through our day to day lives is something that automatically happens. As we go through our daily lives there are displays of art or instances of creativity that are incorporated into our day; We walk past a public garden with an abundance of colorful wildflowers, a beautiful mural in the train station on the way to work. These moments that insert themselves into our thoughts or subconscious can initiate a creative spark, idea, or revelation to our imagination. How do these occurrences impact us? These artists’ books are representations of how a painting, some written words, or a sculpture can create a required spark of art into our world. This year, we invited our members to submit up to three works that offer a reflection on what an instance of art in life means to them.
